The Expo-Sciences Luxembourg is an international, non-competitive science fair that welcomes young laureates from all over the world. Young scientists get the possibility to present their scientific projects alongside our national participants.
The Expo furthers international relationships, the exchange of ideas and cultures and is an excellent opportunity to visit and learn more about Luxembourg.
